Founded in 1953 as Ward Parkway Bank, Country Club Bank adopted its current moniker in 1963, with its present holding company, CCB Financial Corporation, established shortly thereafter in 1968. The late Byron Thompson, iconic Kansas City entrepreneur and former chairman, acquired majority stock ownership in 1985, propelling Country Club Bank from its modest roots into a locally driven, Kansas City staple.
Under Byron’s guidance, and with an eye toward small businesses and community engagement, Country Club Bank swiftly cultivated its stature, burgeoning from a single $42 million commercial bank to a $2.367 billion, multi-faceted financial institution.
As the years passed, they’ve opened 21 locations across Greater Kansas City, as well as an array of respected affiliates that provide trusts, investments, insurance, and wealth management. Country Club Bank’s ultimate goal is to be a great partner for you, your family, or business – and to help you find the path to plan, prosper and preserve.
For generations, they’ve taken pride in doing business the old-fashioned way: by putting customers first. Today, their commitment to the same core values remains steadfast. By deepening the relationships they’ve built, pursuing steady growth and expanding the scope of their service to the greater Kansas City community, they strive to keep the customer – and community – first.
